When purchasing your travel money at one of our in-store Bureau de change desks, you can rest assured you are receiving the best value for money on the high street.

As well as offering 0% commission on your purchase, we are also committed to the John Lewis Never Knowingly Undersold price promise. For more information, please read our Never Knowingly Undersold policy (PDF)

If you find a better rate elsewhere on the high street, drop by to one of our Bureau de change desks with a quote slip and we will match that price. You can even claim a price match up to 28 days from purchase, as long as the date on the competitor quote slip matches your original purchase date. We match foreign currency “sell” rates publically available to all customers, based on those displayed in a Bureau, on a high street competitor’s own website or the first price quoted to us over the phone. The price has to apply to an identical individual foreign currency purchase in terms of currency type, total amount, rates and fees / commission charges that will be applied.

Please note: Our Never Knowingly Undersold service is not available online.


We buy back your unused currency, commission free
Remember, if you don't spend all your travel money, we can buy back unused foreign currency notes and travellers’ cheques. Even if you didn't buy your travel money from us originally, we'll buy your leftover notes as long as they're in sellable condition. When you return from holiday, simply visit one of our Bureau de change desks in John Lewis stores nationwide.

We'll buy notes or travellers’ cheques in sellable condition

We cannot buy back coins or certain denominations of bank notes
